A Brief History of Anime

It’s incredibly difficult to encapsulate all of what’s occurred in Anime from the 2000s on, but suffice it to say, it’s been one of it’s most celebrated eras and has grown to be known as “Anime’s second Golden Age.” Aside from scores of shows that have gone on to define the genre, many of Japan’s finest animated features have been produced within this period. Two greats among them are 2006’s Paprika and 2004’s Steamboy.
